Yorkshire-based building membrane specialist, Industrial Textiles & Plastics (ITP) Ltd, celebrated a major award win when the Stamisol Safe One breather membrane scooped Product of the Year in the Façade 2022 Design and Engineering Awards.
As the exclusive UK suppliers of Stamisol Safe One, ITP attended the finals at Hilton Park Lane, London, to accept the award alongside the product’s manufacturers, Serge Ferrari. Safe One’s innovative design has been at the forefront of membrane development, representing the first breather membrane in the UK to combine a Euroclass A2 fire safety rating with W1 water repellence.
This award reflects the huge impact which Safe One has had in the UK construction market, recognising the product’s advanced technology which is setting standards in breather membrane performance. Safe One’s Euroclass A2 rating has been a key reason for its widespread adoption by façade specialists and the wider construction industry. Our sector is increasingly concluding that breather membranes should meet the same fire safety standards which are required by law for other external wall elements such as cladding. Along with its Euroclass A2 credentials, a range of other performance attributes make Safe One stand out in the market, including exceptional breathability, W1 water repellence, waterproofing of 7000mm and UV resistance of 5000 hoursMarc van der Voort, Managing Director at ITP
